RRHS student receives diploma thru car windowThe term 20/20 has always been associated with eyesight and clarity of vision. So it seems appropriate that the Class of 2020 – born in the wake of 9/11 and graduating in the midst of a pandemic -- may be leaving high school with an insight beyond their years of how difficult the world can be, and how capably they can handle the challenges the world throws at them. 

The 1,149 proud Class of 2020 graduates from Rio Rancho’s four high schools have met some of the most rigorous academic standards in the state, ready to move on to the next level of success in college, a career, or in the armed forces.  But their passage from high school to the “real world” is unlike any other, a theme that resonated with student and staff leaders at all of the schools.  Visit each school under the tabs below to see and hear what they had to say!  Each school’s video includes the drive-through diploma pickup, the Field of Grads at the City Sports Complex, and the Commencement Cheer.
